With a voice that floats with soulful warmth and honesty, Rick Hart is a real storyteller. His words and melodies interweave all the dynamics and extremes of human emotions and relationships.
A tapestry of melody-soaked simplicity and thoughtful imagery, influenced by the likes of Kris Kristofferson, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, CCR, The Band and Springsteen.
Rick spoke recently to Kev Walsh about co-crediting his seven-year-old son, and the routine of songwriting.
"The worst thing you can do as a songwriter is kind of force it," he explains. "I love writing... I'm always humming melodies in my head or in the car and writing down little lyrics here and there."
Produced by Kevin Walsh, the Album of the Week feature is heard live on GMC every morning. You can hear the interviews in full here.
